Blogaversary Giveaway Winners

by in Contests on

I’ve always pushed for a week long celebration of my birth, but it always gets paired down to a single day. Thank goodness that we celebrate Southern Weddings Magazine’s birth week. We celebrated our Second Blogaversary in style with a week of fantastic giveaways. All birth weeks must come to an end (until next year) but I wanted to squeeze one more day of Blogaversary excitement in to announce the winners of all of our many contests:

We asked readers to send us their favorite memories of their significant other for a chance to win a 12 month subscription to Wedding Window to make their very own wedding website.

Congratulations to Amanda H and Sydney D!

One of my favorite memories of my dear and I was right after he proposed–we were so excited! Most people would break open a bottle of champagne, or spend a night on the town, but the first thing that we wanted to do was to go get celebratory ice cream cones. We go back there all the time, not only because the ice cream is delicious, but because we always like to reminisce about our wonderful, and very “us,” engagement celebration.

April 5, 2010 | Amanda H

I am a girl who truly enjoys anything special. I am easily amused, lucky for my sweetie. My sophomore year of college (we had just started dating), the flu attacked me. When I get sick, I really get sick. I did not look like hot stuff- skin was broken out, my hair was a mess, my nose was dry and red and I was totally rockin’ the sweats. Lucas (previously noted as ‘sweetie’), asked if we could spend some time together but I let him know that I was a walking viral plague and that he probably did not want to see me. He played it cool and said we would hang out soon. Well, not a hour later I hear the doorbell ring. I hesitantly went to the door, and who do I see? You guessed it; ‘sweetie’. Insecure as I was, I found strength to open the door and let him see my zombie(ish) features. He answered, “Hello beautiful.” That was all it took and I was ready to say “I do!” He had my favorite smoothie in one hand and a single rose and ‘The Little Mermaid” (my FAVE movie of all time) in the other. I will NEVER forget how special and beautiful he made me feel when I had previously felt like death. From that moment on, I knew that he was a keeper!

Chaviano Bridal Couture has some of the best veils around! Traci has been selected as the winner of a custom veil from Annette at Chaviano Bridal Couture:

What a wonderful giveaway! My gown is ivory satin with a wonderful vintage-y art-deco lace inset, and I’d love just the right veil to complement it. In my mind’s eye I see a float of ivory net, wafting to my fingertips, with gorgeous lace accents that evoke that 1930’s Hollywood glamour feel. It should complement the dress and the vintage jewelry, yet have an elegant and unique personality of its own… think Rita Hayworth glamour coupled with Katherine Hepburn sass. :-)

It looks like the Southern Weddings editors aren’t the only ones obsessed with Mika78! Hannah S. will get 50 custom thank you cards. She chose the Botanicals design from Mika 78 as her very favorite.

________________________________________________________________________________________

First on the website and first in my heart, my favorite design is Botanicals. I love the simple yet elegant feel of the plain white with just a peek of color peeking over the corners. I also love the way they are held together with the Victorian style monogram print in the center. It is the perfect blend of antique and modern.

Did you register for china? We posed this question for the chance to win a gorgeous classic crystal vase from Wedgwood China. Congratulations to Randi E., who was selected as the winner (and has, coincidentally, registered for china):

We registered for china so that we could have nice dishes to use for sunday dinners, holidays and special occasions. We registered at Macy’s for the Wedgewood “Golden Bird” collection. I can’t wait to start getting some of the pieces in!!

I am a humongous chocolate fan, so I am super excited to announce that June W. will get 25 favor boxes from Delysia Chocolatier (that’s 50 pieces of chocolate) for her special day. Lucky, lucky. Plus, she provided tips on the correct way savor chocolates:

________________________________________________________________________________________

Having worked in a gourmet chocolate shop, I think it would be a great addition to my wedding! Our date is November 21, 2010, and I think I would be a great recipient bc I truly know HOW to appreciate chocolate. Did you know you’re never supposed to chew it!? Press it between the back of your tongue and the roof of your mouth and let it melt. Enjoy!

April 9, 2010 | June W

In addition, Delysia Chocolatier has a special offer for Southern Weddings readers! Readers will get a complimentary 9-piece signature collection if they place an order over $400 by April 19th. This is perfect for the newly weds to enjoy in their room with a glass of champagne. If you would like to take part in this special offer, please email Nicole at nicole@delysia.com.

Cufflinks 2 Wear offers amazing cufflinks to add that little something to the groom’s attire. We asked readers to tell us why their man is the best. Congratulations to Rachel L. and her yo-yo pro groom. They will get 5 pairs of cufflinks for all the groomsmen (who hopefully can also yo-yo like pros).

________________________________________________________________________________________

My groom is the best because:
1) he buys me a bottle of wine and draws me a bath when I have a bad day
2) he moved all the way to Georgia to support me in school
3) he can yo-yo like a pro
4) he has the most hilarious sense of humor I’ve ever seen!

Last but not least, we had a special photo caption contest on our Southern Weddings Facebook fan page for the chance to win a copy of the very first issue of Southern Weddings Magazine. It is completely sold out other than the few copies that we have kept in our private stock.

Congratulations to Daniel C! Check out his caption:

Blogaversary Giveaways

by in Contests on

In celebration of our second blogaversary (yay!), this week has been all about giveaways, giveaways, giveaways. You’ve probably noticed.

Well you have just eensy-weensy bit of time left to enter all of these amazing contests and I definitely don’t want you to miss this amazing opportunity.

Here’s a quick round up of all of the great contests that you can still enter:

Head over to the Wedding Window contest for your chance to win a free 12-month hosting term at Wedding Window including premium planning tools and 75 MB of Audio/Visual space. There will be two winners… so you have double the chance to win!

Next up on the giveaway list is a chance to win a gorgeous custom veil from Chaviano Bridal Couture. Annette is a Southern Weddings favorite and she is even making a veil for Katharine’s wedding so you know her work must be superb!

The girls at Southern Weddings (especially Emily) refuse to believe this hub-bub that hand-written letters are going extinct. We believe that everyone should send out personal thank you cards often. It just gives us warm fuzzies whenever we get them! In an effort to bring back the art of the thank you card, we are giving away 50 custom thank you cards from Mika 78.

You aren’t going to want to miss this one! Enter to win a classic vase from Wedgwood. Wedgwood China serve as great heirlooms, which Emily can attest to. Win your heirloom here.

 

Mmm, no blogaversary giveaway week is complete without a chocolate giveaway. To make matters even better, these aren’t just any chocolates. These are some of the best chocolates we have ever tasted from Delysia Chocolatier. Hurry! Enter now!

Last but certainly not least, be sure to enter the Cufflinks 2 Wear contest for 5 pairs of cufflinks. That’s a lot of cufflinks! Enough for all your groomsmen!

Okay, y’all have until 11:59 tonight to enter all of the stellar giveaways. My advice to you is to enter every single one of them!

Good luck!
